Note
"The picturesque Norman Farmhouse constructed in 1931 for Clara and Samuel Weinstein on Southwest Greenbriar Road on the south shore of Lake Oswego in Clackamas County, Oregon was designed by Roscoe Hemenway. Hemenway was one of a number of architects who prepared distinctive house designs in the popular historic period styles for clients in the Portland area through the 1930s and early 1940s. His work is generally recognizable for the quality of workmanship and pleasing details. Like the later work of the acknowledged master of the Arts and Crafts tradition, Wade Pipes, Hemenway's houses evoked a period theme while at the same time pointing in the direction of modernism. The Weinstein House, in its public, or south elevation particularly, recalls Pipes' Portland houses for George Pipes (1923) and Elizabeth Ducey (1926), which exhibited even more striking sculptural treatment of wall dormers gripped by curving eaves.
